In 2019, we saw some of the big telcos already launch 5G services in cities around the world. Some examples of this include SK Telecom launching 5G services in South Korea, Vodafone across Europe, China Telecom in China and AT&T in the United States at the backend of this year.
5G is set to transform the landscape of telecoms as it promises faster download speeds and high network reliability. It will open opportunities for new services, network operation and improved customer experience.
Not only will it affect telecoms, but it will also impact consumers. Going into 2020, we can expect more countries welcoming 5G services to their cities. Use cases including smart grid features for the energy sector, self-driving cars and vital tracking wearables for the healthcare sector, we can see 5G transforming life as we currently know it.
